Being discharged from an inpatient program can be intimidating. For many, it means that you are going to immerse yourself back into reality, which might mean facing triggers and your addiction head-on.

Not everyone is ready to pick up where they left off once they finish inpatient treatment. Some people need a little more support for the first month after being hospitalized, and that’s okay. It’s also not unexpected.

Outpatient services often work as a bridge for those leaving inpatient. They can become more comfortable leaving the facility and heading into the real world while returning for therapy and treatment.

But, some people need an extra level of care, which is where an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) comes into play.

What To Expect in an IOP:

When you enter into an Intensive Outpatient Program, there are different requirements you need to meet. These all pertain to the methods of treatment, different activities to participate in, and your overall recovery journey.

In an IOP, you will attend both individual therapy and group therapy. This will allow you to understand your connection to substance abuse better and find mental health support from other people fighting substance use disorder. Community is key.

Through support groups and recreational activities, you can find common ground with other patients. During an IOP, one of our goals is to introduce you to other sober individuals so that you can continue developing healthy connections once you’ve left our facility.
